The IRSST released a new research report on a study that examined the nature of the anxiety symptoms exhibited by workers with a musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) that resulted in a work absence of more than 12 weeks, during their participation in a work rehabilitation program. The primary goal was to document the presence, intensity and temporal changes in generalized anxiety disorder and its maintenance factors, such as intolerance of uncertainty, worries, negative problem orientation, and beliefs about the usefulness of worrying, cognitive avoidance and depression.
